Never heard of that one. There are a sea of options available however.

SCOM/SCCM is pretty good, as you can do a lot more than just network monitoring.
In addition LabTech, Kaseya, Nagios, PTRG and Solarwinds can do a good job depending on your requirements.
They all have pro's and con's. Personally I enjoy Labtech, Nagios and PTRG. PTRG being the easier one from my perspective.
Nagios however is largely free with a good community support available.

Apologies for the late response. Hosted monitoring does exist yes. I have not used those myself, but have a look at the options listed here. Hope that helps a bit more.
Again apologies for the late response. Got tied up with other things and forgot.
